of homeland defense and security. the head of fema, there's been a lot of conference calls every single day on emergency response. ray lahood has been coordinating the response on the transportation system, but fema is coordinating the overall response. i'm sure that there will be requests for infrastructure, for people. it is a disaster beyond belief. and there has to be a commission to look at ways we can try and prevent this in the future. one of the problems in new york is a lot of the infrastructure was in the basement of buildings. for example the hospitals, they had their m.r.i.'s, these huge electrical systems. and othercies testimonies in the basement. it's all destroyed with the saltwater. i was touring n.y.u. medical yesterday, and the smell, the stench just from a few days was almost unbelievable. the combination of this type of electric communication systems rotting. everywhere you see on the lower east side, the pumps are working, trying to push water out. some of our larger institutions do have generators, but fema and the national guard and really the federal government are
and deployed food, water and generators of and down the corcoast. by midweek, the department of defense was ready to fly in cargo planes but would be loaded with equipment to help local power companies get up and running faster. the recovery will still be a long, hard road for many families. it is a long road ahead. if you have been directly impacted by this storm and need temporary assistance getting back on your feet, you can call 1-800-621-fema, or apply at disasterassistance.gov. if you know folks who are still without power, and please let them know. if you do not live in an affected area, contact the red cross to find out how you can help. when the storm was darkest, the heroism of our fellow citizens shone brightest. nurses and doctors at nyu hospital brought newborn's downstairs. firefighters rescued people from apartment buildings. coast guard crews save a sinking ships pins in stormy seas -- save a sinking ship in stormy seas. that is who we are. we are americans. when times are tough, we are tougher. we put others first, we go the extra mile, we open our hearts and our homes
in that capacity and he is one of the few republicans who looks at the defense budget and can make a strong case for ways to cut spending on defense. he is intriguing to a lot of voters as a result. about this race for a second. guest: ed is one of the hardest working people if not the hardest in the coming negation. joe coors has put in $3 million into his own race and he is from the coors beer family. he has made a point of saying that he built his own fortune in the manufacturing business. they are also competing in a newly we don. -- a newly redrawn district. it includes points west of the city of denver. all accounts are that the congressman has a fight on his hands but he is up to the task. this is the third congressional district, southern colorado and what we call the western slopes, west of the continental divide. that has incumbent tipton and sal pace. pace is also from the state house of representatives. that's another to keep an eye on. host: next caller, jan from louisville, tenn. caller: no one ever mentions ever mentionsbenghazi. -- about benghazi. i have not read any newspaper ar

[cheers and applause] i would have never signed the national defense authorization act allowing for you and i as u.s. citizens to be arrested and detained without being charged. that's the reason we fought wars in this country. [cheers and applause] i promise to submit a balanced budget to congress in the year 2013. that is a 1.4 trillion reduction in federal spending. if we don't do this now, we are going to find ourselves in a monetary collapse and a monetary collapse very simply is when the dollars we have in our pockets don't buy a thing because of the acome anying inflation -- because of the accompanying inflation that goes along with every dollar we spend. thathe only candidate wants to eliminate income tax, eliminate corporate tax, abolish the i.r.s. and replace all of that with one federal consumption tax, the fair tax. i think it is the answer to our exports, it is the answer to american jobs. [applause] >> in what way way does the war on drugs impact americans? that was submitted by jeff tanguay via facebook. >> the war on drugs has been an u

to the future and as we look at a new defense strategy as we try to work through what the roles of the different services are and the defense strategy i also remind everyone that we will be downsizing during this time. the army who at the beginning of calendar year 12 was a 570,000 will go down to 49,090,000 in the active component by the end of 17 so we have significant deployment commitments. we are downsizing our army and we are now looking to the future. one of the main things is we have to do is ensure we have the right mix so i talk about rea stats and the secretary of the army and i really pay a lot of attention to it. end strength, modernization and readiness. in general terms those are the drivers and we have to keep those imbalance. we want to learn from the lessons of the future of past drug downs and some of the lessons is you can't get out of balance because if you get out of balance you start to have an unready army which leads to a hollow army and of course we always talk about in the army task force and its impact and unpreparedness as it was asked to go in to korea forced world
's also true that the disclosure of certain highly classified sensitive national defense information security grounds the protect the secrecy of information critical to the national security and the right to free speech and the value of the informed citizenry is not absolute to the nation's security as the fourth circuit said in the u.s. versus morrison they said public security can be compromised and to raise the information is needed for democracy to function and the physical security which a functioning government requires or as the district judge in the district of virginia couple of years ago he wrote to the defendant's first amendment challenge to the espionage statute is the tension between the government transparency so essentials of the space society on the one hand and the government's equally compelling need to protect the disclosure information that could be used by those that wish to do the nation harm. the tension between the two principals, the first principles as i call them is not one that will necessarily resolve this morning but i mention them because it does and f
an excellent meeting with the team here, the various agencies in charge, including the department of defense, the department of energy, and others that will need to respond very quickly. we have had a chance to talk to regional officials as well. i just had a phone call with the governors of the potentially impacted states and cities in the region. at this stage everyone is confident that the staging process, the positioning of resources, commodities, and equipment that will be needed to respond to the storm are in place. as craig has emphasized, this has not made landfall yet. we do not yet know where it will hit, where we're going to see the biggest impacts. that is exactly why it is so important for us to respond big and fast as local information starts coming in. i want to thank all of the members of the team for the outstanding work they're doing, but the other thing that makes this storm unique is that we anticipate it will be slow moving. meaning it may take a long time not only to clear, but to get, for example, power companies back in to clear out the trees and put things back in pl
in this country. we have to immediately implement changes. one thing is to look at our defense carefully. when we spend $300 million a day, we can no longer afford that. we have to do it performance review on each and every department in the federal government to ensure we are getting an effective, efficient government, and that technology is used in order to give a return on taxpayers. that is something that has not have been for the past 36 years. >> i appreciate the farm bureau and their support for may. no question, i have always supported them. they do a terrific job for our farmers across utah and across the country as well. i am the ranking republican on the senate finance committee. that is the most powerful committee in the whole congress. ways and means is the most powerful in the house. if we are going to solve problems for the country, if will be that committee that does that. everybody knows that, and that is one reason, a primary reason, that i running again. other than mitt romney. mitt romney has come out in full support of me. he knows that once he is president, with me as chairm
. virginia has -- depends on defense to a greater degree than every other state except for alaska. we are second in per-capita defense expenditures. there's a special flavor on defense and special flavor on federal spending because governmental employment is so important not just in northern virginia which borders and washington d.c. but also in hampton roads and the surrounding localities. host: water the demographics of the state of virginia? guest: as with most large population states, they are many states in one. you ignore the virginia which is about 1/3 of the state's population and produces at least 30% of the boat if not more. that has a low nativity rate. that population is national and international in scope. it is the highest income region. it has people with the highest educational level and the state on average. it tends to be the most democratic region. if you go down to tidewater and hampton roads, that is a heavy defense industry area. it is a white-collar and blue- collar and has a large african- american population. it also has a relatively low nativity rape, people
. and a means forgoing these across-the-board defense cuts that, this man heinrich supported so that we don't lose another 20,000 jobs next year. that's what i will do in the united states senate and i look forward to the discussion this evening. >> martin heinrich, your opening statement. heinrich: growing up my dad was an electrician. my mom worked in a factory. they worked hard and stretched every dime but there were still tough times along the way. so, i know what it's like to struggle in a tough economy. and i'm running for the senate because i want our children, yours and mine, to inherit the kind of country that we all believe in growing up. an america where you prosper if you work hard and play by the rules. i want you to know that my priorities are mexico's priorities. protecting social security and medicare. tax cuts for the middle class, keeping our promises to our veterans and making college more affordable for everyone. i come home nearly every weekend so i can hold the job fairs to meet with the mexicans and raise my family. i've always fought for the things that matter most t
of defense. we talk with all the governors in the affected states as well as an awful lot of the mayors. i can tell you confidently that the federal government, state government, local government, they are doing everything in their power to coordinate relief as rapidly as we can do so many people who have been devastated by this storm. [applause] as tragic as it is, my mom, god rest her soul, she said, joe, out of something bad, something good will look --, if you look hard enough. my state of delaware was hit. it is a low-lying state. the hurricane went on shore about 30 miles from rehoboth to, in new jersey. my state, where my in-laws used to live, where my brothers and sisters live, they were hit pretty badly. i have a sister in law and family who live in ocean city, new jersey. you saw how badly they were hit. it is kind of amazing -- it is kind of amazing. a call yesterday with all the governors and mayors, it warmed my heart. you had the governor of delaware, the governor of connecticut, the governor of pennsylvania, democrats and republicans, and they were hurt. the governor of mary
, and they will tell you defensive medicine occurs right here and in every community across america. if they make a mistake, they know they are going to be taken to court, but it is the doctors doing two procedures instead of one or checking into a hospital instead of outpatient service. we can talk about health care plans, the opportunity to buy health insurance. we can talk about the opportunity of allowing bigger pools to be created, expanding programs so we have more family practice. these are ideas we are willing and ready to prepare. we are not allowed to. >> senator tester, there are polls that show that montana and steve not like affordable care act. how can you sell it? >> that is the bottom line were you have a pre-existing condition. i am glad the congressman talk about selling across the state lines, about increasing general practitioners and family practice in the health-care bill. there is a lot of stuff in the health-care bill. i always get accused of not reading it. the bottom line is the health- care bill extends health care for eight years. the mistake that was made was that we
of shark attacks. >> gretchen: was it self defense or all out assault. gene hackman slapped a homeless man. he attacked the actor and the man called police that the hackman beat him up. cops said he acted in self defense and did not arrest him. >> steve: in new jersey, a beach goer spotted a deer that was stuck in the ocean and couldn't get back on the beach because of the barriers of rocks. the guy still went to the water and helped him out. excellent. >> gretchen: coming up. wrath of hurricane sandy not limited to new york and new jersey shores, what will she do to massachusetts? we'll take you there live after the break. >> the president promised federal help but should the feds be involved at all. do the governors need the president and waington to intervene. charles is next. stay top of mind with customers? from deals that bring them in with an offer... to social media promotions that turn fans into customers... to events that engage and create buzz... to e-mails that keep loyal customers coming back, our easy-to-use tools will keep you in front of your customers. see what's right for
in spending cuts, with half of that coming from the defense budget. military leaders say it would be stay crippling. if the justices said it would be devastating to the economy -- state legislators said it would be devastating to the economy. can you explain your vote on that bill? >> absolutely. i voted to avoid default, just like john mccain. he made that exact same vote. we voted to make sure we did not go into a double-dip recession and lead the world into a global recession. i did not support sequestration. sequestration is based on the tea party premise that you do not raise revenues whatsoever. i believe we need to take a balanced approach. we are going to need to increase revenues, and we will need to cut agency budgets and stomach some cuts that many democrats are not going to be happy about. that is the only way we get to where we need to be on this. i think it is incumbent upon myself and everyone else in congress to get back to work after this election and come up with a solution that has both of those pieces. cuts and revenues, rather than embraces the tea party sequestration
the on a regular basis -- in defense of their friend who are going to be deported to countries they have never known. thee these are dream act students tens and thousands that graduate high school every years. there's a kid brought in to the country at age 2 from honduras. the mom in the mental asigh limb. only when he pays a parking ticket does he find out before going college he's not documented. he didn't know. he's going to be deported. he doesn't speak spanish. we ask people the question, should that person be deported a very different than about -- thing a gracious of the campaigns -- might occur from the individual stories an instrumentally the broader movement bigger national change. so you >> you mention any of the cause are -- is there a conservative an long. >> we see more conservative campaigns. started be conservative. we don't know until we en-- there's a case where in the target ends up about a week before thanksgiving last year they announce that all the workers the first time are going to have to work on thanksgiving. there's a worker in kansas and starts a petition gets 150,0

? for example, it seems to me that they are generally satisfied with defense cooperation and have accepted and cooperated on sanctions, but they have considerable concerns about war and considerable concerns about the consequences of iraq and what our policy is in syria, and certainly palestine. so would anyone like to comment about that? >> can everybody hear me? so, i think part of iran's favor is isolating itself from the neighborhood in terms that particularly the gcc states. under ahmadinejad since 2005, the islamic republic has done a lot to scare everybody in the region, through its nuclear pursued, but a range of other action. when you look at iranian policy before ahmadinejad, there was a tendency to seek some sort of cordial working relationship with the gcc states, including saudi arabia, especially saudi arabia. for example, rafsanjani really trying to be some of the tensions between iran and saudi arabia, followed much more policy toward saudi arabia and the gcc states. of course, the historic and ideological tension between the two sides never went away, but ahmadinejad has m
team here and the various agencies in charge including the didn't of the defense and energy that are going to need to respond quickly. we've had a chance to talk to the regional officials of fema as well and i've talked to the governors of the potentially impacted states as well as the cities in the region. at this stage, everybody is confident that the staging process, the position of equipment that are going to be needed to respond to the storm are in place. but as craig has imp sized this hasn't hit land fall yet so we don't know where it's going to hit or where we're going to see the biggest impacts. and that's why it's so important for us to respond big and fast as local information starts coming in. i want to thank all the members of the team for the outstanding work that they're doing. but the other thing that makes this storm unique is we anticipate it's going to be slow moving. that means it may take a long time not only to clear but to get, for example, the power companies to get in to clear trees and put things back in place so that folks can start moving back hom
, and the secretary of defense sit and watch what happened in real time and not send aid to those people, if everybody understood that is what happened. then they went out and made up a story that it was some unruly mob when it was clearly a planned attack by al qaeda. guest: i think there are a lot of problems with that. there were not watching in real time. i don't want to get into the specifics of the actual and got the attack or anything around it. however, i think there's something important to be done. the full story will be reported. there will be investigations both by the house of representatives and by the state department. republicans to control the house of representatives, by the way. we look forward to those things coming out. whether or not expect a robust surprise, and pretty sure it's not, i'm pretty sure most voters are not paying attention to it and are not taking a close look at it. we will see how it all plays out. -- i am pretty sure it is not the october surprise. host: there's the "washington times" -- guest: this is the nebraska senate seat and senator ben nelson is retiring.
about what are you going to do about coastal cities, what sort of defenses will you put in place if you want to have a city like manhan that's right on the coast, it's at sea level. can we not have that many people living close to the sea. we have almost 4 million americans living a if few feet of high tide. is it right to be insuring that kind of property as well. we also have to think about climate change. we can argue endlessly really and scientists do over exactly how much climate change plays what role with weather. but we know enough to take steps to deal with it. we know enough to have a plan in place to reduce carbon emissions over time. we don't have absolute certainly in foreign policy and the economy, we can't wait around until we know for certain we need to take steps now. >> rose: that's what the mayorpoind to, carbon attacks or maybe able to measure carbon standards. where is there a model, steve, of a city in the world that's responded to the challenge? >> well, it depends on how much wealth you have. i mean holland, the netherlands is essentially an engineered country
, dwellings for civilians. >> warner: jeffrey white, a defense fellow at the washington institute for near east policy, says the syrian government is waging a deliberate "scorched earth" strategy. >> it's trying to get at f.s.a. units that are embedded inside the population. where people are, the f.s.a. tends to be. so it is trying to strike at the f.s.a., cause some attrition on them. but it's also trying to punish the people, the civilians, for supporting the f.s.a. the relationship between the f.s.a. units and the people is critical to the success of the rebellion >> warner: why don't the regime forces just go into these areas and take them and hold them? >> it basically can't do that any longer. six months ago, they could go anywhere in the country, effectively, they wanted with armor mechanized forces backed up by artillery, and simply push the f.s.a. out of the area and retake the area and reestablish a presence. the opposition is strong enough now that the regime's ground forces, to go into those areas, is a punishing affair for the regime. >> warner: throughout the conflict, syrian
from the united states department of defense that relate to u.s. military policies relating to detainees. they say they'll continue to release more documents over the coming month. one man who made international headlines after he was accused of leaking to the group is bradley manning. his trial will not begin until next february, but over his last two years in prison, there are some who have tried to draw up support on manning's behalf and that include a music legend who is my guest today. joining me now from los angeles, singer, song writer and member of the rock 'n' roll hall of fame, graham nash. thank you for pencilling us into your schedule. >> you're very welcome. and i haven't been to sleep yet, so i'm all right. >> why does that not surprise you? you rock 'n' rollers. last night, i know you did perform at this event that was organized by the bradley manning support network and i know it helps raise legal funds on behalf of the accused soldiers, so we're wondering why did you feel the need -- what prompted you to get involved in this? >> i became an american citizen
of disagreement you have with mitt romney, mandel? >> it is on defense spending. a lot of republicans say that you cannot cut military spending. i will do everything i can to be vigilant against the war with radical islam, but we don't need these bases throughout europe. we are not fighting the cold war anymore. we should trim down the bases we have in europe and bring home the young men and women. use that money to fund medicare. >> colleen has the next question. >> he said that you sign legislation to ban abortion without exception. what is your opinion on cases like rape and? >> -- incest? >> i do support the life of the mother and this is an issue that is a very divisive issue, and this is an issue where people are very passionate on both sides. and i respect that. i am pro-life but i understand that people have different positions. but there are areas of common ground. one of the areas where we can work together, is on the better loss for adoption. -- better laws for adoption. we should encourage adoption in the united states of america with federal laws here in the state capital. and taxpaye
of the family's wishes and the secretary of defense's wishes. we felt and still feel it was the correct thing to do, but it was clear the a subject that caused a lot of debate. >> it is very awkward because you bond with these people. you can be with them for a couple weeks. they are feeding and protecting you. you hear their stories and their shattered dreams and they tell you about their families and you bond with them. then you see something you feel needs to be recorded that puts them in a bad light. you may go ahead and record it, but it always feels like a sense of being slightly dirty. they do not college and embed their, they just call it reporting with the colombian military. i had to go with them because it was where there was fighting. that is the traditional territory. they like to kidnapped journalists. you really cannot go with them. i did not have excellent contact with them. with the military. one day, there is a day off, and they have a barbecue. they play this music. it is mexican music that glorifies the drug crash -- the drug traffickers. these soldiers i was with in colom
at all of the issue in the own politics. national defense he was a staunch anticommunist. and played an important role in right-wing anticommunist politics. it's one of the things that lead in to switch parties in 1964. he was a key figure in opposing labor unions. he did so alongside people like barry gold water. even though early in the career a staunch advocate of union in south carolina. back in the '30s and '40s. he switches in the '50s and '60s and becoming a die hard supporter of business against labor in '70s. its an important role in conservative even evangelical politics. he joins the board of bob jones university in 1950. he does to win votes in the country of south carolina. bob jones had moved to south carolina moved university and he needed votes in the south carolina. he lost the 1950 raise for the senate. and that began a long process a long relationship with strom with conservative moneyment lal and even evangelicallists who were looking to get involved in political process. we need understand the racial politics in the midst of these other conservative causes. these
's a document about the defense intelligence agency which is the defense department version of the cia. it basically says, our intelligence of weapons of mass destruction is terrible. we really don't know anything. and that is coming out at the same time that the administration is saying these things about, we're going to have mushroom clouds over new york. and so was their intelligence to say that there are weapons of mass destructions? yes. was it did? no. was there a lot of intelligence the other way? yes. one of the things that people forget, we sent the weapons inspectors back in. there with a bunch of you in inspectors and they said, we can't find anything. and that was not viewed as intelligence. that was viewed as let's make fun. and so, you know, it was a bad application of intelligence by people who thought they knew it with the answer was. >> yes. >> it sounds like based on what you say, a lot of the decisions made a based on faulty intelligence. i guess and just wondering, we are we pass the 500. we a lot of things on the rise in. >> actually, one of the more interesting co
